2010 State of the Industry Members Only Webinar: A Continued Dedication to Workplace Learning and Development During Uncertain Times
In spite of the recent uncertain economic conditions that plagued both the private and public sectors in 2009, the 2010 State of the Industry report reflects a continued dedication to workplace learning and development in a variety of organizations worldwide. Although organizations made many changes in the past year to adapt to the economic environment, they continued their financial commitment to learning and development for their employees at levels nearly equal to or greater than in past years.
This annual compendium provides data covering the strategic and operational activities against which organizations can benchmark their learning investments and practices. For 14 years, the State of the Industry report has provided insightful, actionable information for learning executives and business leaders to use when making decisions about how to leverage and build their talent. The data in the current edition includes responses from users of the WLP Scorecard, ASTD Forum organizations, and the 2010 ASTD BEST Award winners.
